"How the Pharma Industry Can Help Japan Become the 'Best Place to Live and Age'"

As Japan's society is rapidly aging with its birthrate constantly below replacement levels, the inevitable question has loomed large: how can the healthcare system of the world's third largest economy be sustained on a long-term basis?

PhRMA (Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America) offers to share with the FCCJ its insights on how the pharmaceutical industry can help Japan maintain its current healthcare system while continuing to bring innovative medicines to the Japanese people, who top the world's country-by-country life expectancy table at 83.7 for both sexes.

The trade group, which represents innovative biopharmaceutical research companies in the United States, is due to present its position on recent changes to Japan's government-led drug pricing system. PhRMA may also detail the findings of its recent report on how the pharmaceutical industry can "contribute to making Japan the best place to live and age."

At the press conference, PhRMA will be represented by Patrik Jonsson, chairman of the group's Japan-Based Executive Committee, and Amy Jackson, its Japan Representative. They will be joined by Kazuhiko Nishizawa, Chief Senior Economist at the Economics Department of the Japan Research Institute, who is a leading expert on social security particularly the pension system. Swedish-born Jonsson is also president of Eli Lilly Japan K.K. while Jackson, a former director of Japanese affairs for the Office of the US Trade Representative, serves as a vice president of the American Chamber of Commerce in Japan.
